A New Year & A New Look

Just Before Christmas I had the fortune of photographing the newly renovated Stieralm on the Penken Mountain, Mayrhofen. The restaurant is under new management and is a vast improvement on what was there previously. The original structure is still the same but with a lot of time, effort and passion Max, and his father, Walter have breathed a new life into an old landmark. if your in Mayrhofen this winter I recommend dropping by for a bite to eat and a schnapps or 2!

An Evening with Hollawax

Just before the Festive break I did a shoot at a local restaurant of the band Hollawax. They were providing music for patrons during the evening and I was commissioned to capture them in action. The venue, Wirtshaus zum Griena,  is an amazing old traditional Zillertaler house that has been converted into a restaurant and serves a great selection of traditional Austrian cuisine.

The Shoot itself was a challenge due to the difficult lighting in the building as well as not really being able to set up any external lights as it was a fully functional restaurant ona busy Friday night. Still my Canon 6D kept up and we pushed the envelope with the ISO.
